Sony Ericsson Arc - Review

In this review, we will talk about Sony Ericsson Arc, running on the Android platform.

The Sony Ericsson Arc features a solid and really sleek build with simple to use multimedia functions for your use. It comes with a good display screen that gives out excellent and bright colored images. The Sony Ericsson Arc carries a MicroSD card under its battery cover, so easy swapping has gone out of question. Sony Ericsson Arc is a sleek phone, measuring up to 125 mm in length, 63 mm in width and in terms of thickness, and the phone measures just 8.7 mm. The phone is marked by attractiveness alongside being ultra slim. The phone weighs only 117g. For more information, just go through the review.

Now in the review, we will discuss some of the features of the phone.

Sony Ericsson Arc carries a big 4.2’’ display screen, having a resolution of 480x854 pixels. The display of the phone is powered by Sony Bravia mobile engine. With the Sony Bravia mobile engine, users can enjoy the same picture quality they enjoy on large Sony televisions. The touchscreen display screen on the cellular is capacitive, not resistive, which makes it very responsive. We also realized that the display magnificently sharp and accurate but not really as great as Super AMOLDED display screens. Reading through textual content is really an easy job to do on the cellular, whereas viewing images and WebPages seem to be clear. The interface of Sony Ericsson Arc is very easy to use, you can familiarize with it quickly. When you can get through the interface, you will discover a lot of apps which can help you enjoy watching movies and even playing music. There are few drawbacks of the device are, display screen has poor viewing angles, no front-facing camera, main competitors have dual-core CPUs and better GPUs, microSD card slot is not hot-swappable and camera key isn’t particularly comfortable.

Thanks to Timescape UI, the navigation on Sony Ericsson Arc is pretty simple. The device runs on a 1 GHz processor, because of which, tossing between apps and screens seemed to be very smooth. The overall performance of the cellular is extremely good; it is very instant, responsive and fast. Multi-tasking on the cellular is also quite an easy and comfortable task.

Now in the review, we will take a look at the camera on the cellular.

Sony Ericsson Arc features a 8 MP camera with LED flash. The camera is capable of recording HD videos with 720p @ 30 fps and also with continuous auto-focus support and with LED flash support as well. The image quality of the phone is quite good. However, images turn out slightly underexposed and colors are duller than we would’ve liked.

Now the review will discuss the other features of the phone.

Sony Ericsson Arc operates on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) by means of that, you will get access to stuff just like Gmail, an app for YouTube, Quick Office for Android as well as others. Furthermore, at the time Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) runs on the cellular, the browser of the phone comes in complete support for Adobe flash 10.2. WebPages which are Flash-heavy could be accessed without having much of lagging, and that is another pleaser. As being the Smartphone runs on Android Os, you'll have the option of syncing with Gmail, IMAP and exchange accounts. The device can also be capable of integrating with social networking sites. Some other options that come with the phone contain Bluetooth, WI-Fi. The device comes in support of wide range of music and video codec’s like MP3, AAC, WAV and MPEG-4.The phone comes in support of DLNA, which enables content streaming with other devices that are DLNA enabled. The device also equipped with the feature to use it as Wi-Fi Hotspot. Further more, the phone comes in support of HDMI mirroring mode, enabling you to watch the contents of your phone on the television.

To conclude off of this review, we’d suggest that Sony Ericsson Arc is a Smartphone that offer some good features all around, the camera on the cellular is good, and so can be its display screen. The Sony Ericsson Arc is a power packed Android Smartphone.
